Fletcher Bay

A slender cove on the west shore of the island and running inland for a half-mile, with an average width of a few hundred feet. Along its banks were attractive homes and a dance pavilion provided a social center. The name was given for William C. Fletcher, who took a land claim on July 17, 1869. A local name was Greek George’s Bay. Up through 1930 a ferry used to operate from the southwest edge of Fletcher Bay with service over to Brownsville on Burke Bay. This was prior to construction of the bridge at Agate Passage. Today, this community is a mix of early vacation shorefront cottages and newly constructed homes, with virtually no public access to the waterfront.
